Amazon.com Inc. is looking to launch Amazon Go, its checkout-free brick-and-mortar grocery store, in New York after an earlier launch in Seattle, Reuters reported Sept. 8, citing an Amazon spokesperson.
The company's 'checkout-free' grocery store allows customers to shop using their smartphone app without cashiers. Cameras and sensors monitor what customers buy and then Amazon bills their credit cards after they leave.
Amazon saw the opening of its first concept store in Seattle in January and now owns three stores in the city, according to the report. The company has also disclosed plans to expand the stores to Chicago and San Francisco.
